While not as old as Noosa Tri itself, the Noosa 1000 Ocean Swim has created its own place in history over the past 24 years.

There is no doubt it is one of Australia’s premier ocean swims, and on the bucket-list for elites and age-groupers alike.

Indeed many swimmers come back to Noosa each year just for this race ... and why not with a start and finish on one of Australia's best beaches and plenty of time left over to take in the rest of the action during Noosa Tri week.
